As much as I hate Serena, I must say it's Serena in two easy sets.
She will prove just too much for Elena. Beating Venus means little nowadays. I'm seeing Serena in a different league by herself and only Justine has the legit reason to believe she can join Serena.

OUT!

...would love to see Elena win but realistically, it's not very likely... :)

Elena will win, probably in three..

Before I say anything: Why the hell is there an "injured" option in the poll? :confused:

Serena might not be in such a great shpe after all. Who knows? Plus, how many of us thought that Elena will beat Petrova? Most of us thought that Nadia will blow Lena off the court, but look what happened. I agree that it could be Serena in two, but a realistic prediction would be 3 sets.
Hope that Elena will win! I believe in her!

Dementieva in 2 sets. Serena looked stiff in her semifinal, and Demetieva's second serve will drive her nuts!

I think Serena will beat Elena. She is going to kill that serve of Elena. :lol:

Serena´s returning has been plenty effective during the whole tournament and I can´t see her not punishing the thing called Elena D´s serve. Can´t see that happening...and that combined with her own superior serving, means Serena should be winning.

The upset of the century! :bounce: I think if Serena Williams was in her Wimbledon 2003 form that she would beat Elena Dementieva in straight sets in the 2004 Nasdaq-100 Open women's final just the way she beat Elena in straight sets at last years Wimbledon. Serena overwhlemed Elena in that match! :eek: In part because that was the first time they played. But I didin't like the way Serena was moivng in her semifinal match. I think Elena is moving great and will get alot of balls back leading to alot of unforced errors by Serena. I also think the windy conditions will take some the power and effectiveness away from Serena's tremendous serve. Elena can play with Serena off the ground. I have no doubt about that. I think there will be alot of service breaks in this match. Elena expects her serve to be broken. But Serena doesn't expect her serve to be broken and that will hurt her confidence enough where Elena can upset her. I think Elena will win a 3 sets struggle 7-6(4) 3-6 6-4.

I am very happy Elena is playing well. :) And it's great for the WTA Tour that Serena has returned to action. :D

One thing we´re forgetting too: Serena DOESN´T lose finals all that often!! For all the wind and struggle and this and that, Serena still had more winners than ufe´s in ALLL her matches. something Elena did NOT acomplish....

But it will be Serena's 1st challenger in this tournament.

This is the other thing you're forgetting too ;)

Serena will win, but I hope for the sake of Venus that either a) Dementieva makes it close or b) Dementieva wins

Good counterpoint, bandabou. And then a good counterpoint to your point from Havtuchov.

I think Serena will win the final motive for her since the person she is playing beat her sister & plus Serena did a hell of a job to get to the final on her first tourament of the year hell of job hands down to her :worship: to complish that. GOOD LUCK TO HER on Sat. I will be routing for her.....:bounce:

I thought Petrova would beat Elena, and Serena should beat Her, but this Wok -grunter surprises at times

Plus look how intense the girl is....she was screaming and fist-pumping all over the place. She may lose, but Serena´s gonna fight till she drops dead.

I think Serena in 2. She's still not back to her greatest level, but she's able to defeat Elena without too much problems.

I guess beating ms Venus gave Elena an extra confidence against Serena...I totally underestimated Elena against ms Venus, I really thought that ms Venus would actually win, but a point did make the difference.

Anyways, I think that Serena would win in 3 sets.

If she gets angry with people who beat Venus, does she kich herself too after, say, Wimbledon finals and stuff? ;)

I'm not sure how everyone can be so certain :confused: I think this match has a good chance of being great, either that or another error fest like Venus VS Elena.

Elena is playing very well and has a lot of confidence in her game. IMO she's in a position much like she was last year at Amelia Island, where she beat Justine and Lindsay :eek: . I think she has a game that can trouble an injured Serena so would I be surprised if she wins, no.

As for Serena well I still can't believe she's in a final her first tournament back. A good sign for her is that her serve is working well. 6 aces vs 3 double faults against Eleni is pretty good. Her returns aren't that bad either not near her old form but getting there. All Serena needs to do is work on her movement which is a tad slow as of now. Serena's hunger and determination to win should keep her in this match though.

Anyway I'm not making a prediction! LOL GO SERENA:bounce: :bounce:

I'd think the chances are 50/50. Maybe a little more for S.... No! Equal!

Still amazing that in only her first tournament back after 8 months, nobody still has the guts to pick against Serena.... that is telling really imo.
